Joy of immersion, ice sports were held in Gangneung.
Short track giving the thrill of the reversal moment when it overtook the ice track / Figure skating making people cheer the last spin after fair performance / Curling making everyone watch the games on smart phones and be fascinated by its different charm / Hockey making people thrilled watching the puck sliding between the sticks / Speed skating, the moment of setting the new world record beyond the limit of oneself
